Hello K’s Cuisine family, hope you are all doing great.
Months ago I announced on my Instagram and facebook page about a sauce from K’s Cuisine coming to your kitchen soon. The time has now come!
I had initially thought of bottling and selling the sauce but after careful consideration I decided to give you K’s Cuisine families the sauce recipe for a token so that you can make yours in the comfort of your kitchen as much as you want and as many times as you want. For a small charge, you have a keeper recipe for a lifetime. Not a very smart business idea on my part because I could make so much more money bottling the sauce but it’s not just about money. I would love this sauce to be accessible to as many people as possible all over the world and the best way to make that happen is to give you the recipe. So guys let’s do this!
So what is Zahmilah sauce?
Zahmilah sauce named after my two daughters Zahrah and Kamilah is specifically formulated as marinade for grills, as dip and sauce. It is delicious, awesome and just superb. This sauce is easy to make and specifically formulated for grills but can be used for a whole lot more than that. You can use to fry eggs, marinate potatoes, yam, plantain before frying or grilling, add to stew base and a whole lot more.
I will be sharing many recipes you can make with this sauce on my blog and social media pages. If you are not already following me on Instagram and facebook please do so as not to miss any recipe and updates. Instagram handles are @kscuisine and @kscuisinespices.
This is the first of K’s Cuisine Ebook and I am very excited for the many others to follow (free and premium). I will appreciate your support so please guys do purchase and download this recipe and start experiencing magic in your cooking.
Last week i gave you a new Nigerian breakfast, Akara in a hole (Recipe HERE), today i am giving you a New Nigerian dessert and I call it Ogi Trifle.
So what is Ogi trifle? Let me start with what trifle is for the benefit of those who are not familiar with it.
Trifle is an English dessert that is made up of atleast 3 main ingredients which are cake, custard and fruits. It is almost usually served at christmas and there are different variations of this dessert. I have created Nigerian trifle using 2 Nigerian food Ogi (pap) and Zobo. Dang! was it banging or what? oh yeah it was.
This dessert is quick to make if you have the cake made beforehand. You can use home made cake or if that’s too much trouble buy from the stores.
Valentine is coming up and if you are dining in and have been thinking of what to make for dessert then give this yummy creation a try. Let’s do this:
It’s so cold in London and I didn’t want to get out of bed this morning.You know the type of day when you just want to stay under the duvet and sleep all day? Yeah one of those days but then a girl’s gotta to do what a girl’s gotta do right? So here i am at the restaurant working hard and hustling my passion and making this post.
So on today’s recipe, As I was about to write this post I deliberated on what name to call this. Akara in a hole? Bird’s nest Akara? Akara hole? Akara toast? Toasted akara in bread? Then i thought oh shoot..It really doesn’t matter what i call it, i just want to give you the recipe so you can make it and enjoy it! I decided to call it Akara in a hole.
So what is Akara in a hole? Akara in a hole is a new Nigerian breakfast developed by yours truly. It’s very easy to make, you can make it as healthy as you like, it’s quick and delicious. It is toasted bread and healthy akara all in one piece, no mess, no fuss, looks appealing and above all practical!
So fam, here is another K’s Cuisine original recipe. Let’s Cook:
Hello K fam and Cands, how are you all doing? Today i am giving you a recipe with super quick cooking time. It’s microwave mug moin moin! Oh yes we changing the moin moin game.
It’s no doubt moin moin takes time from start to finish. From peeling beans, to blending, mixing, wrapping in leaves and then the cooking time! It is a labour of love no doubt😁. Years ago i gave you the super fast method of peeling beans with blender (HERE) and today i’m giving you a super fast method of cooking moin moin. Let’s Cook:
Moin Moin batter (check HERE)
Boiled Eggs (sliced)
Mackerel (boiled and deboned)
1) Get all ingredients ready. To peel beans for moin moin batter using blender click HERE, For recipe for moin moin batter click HERE.
So, u have the batter mixed and ready
2) Pour batter into mugs
3) Add eggs, mackerel and vegetables
You can also use any microwave safe bowl. Like below i used plastic containers but then they will be called microwave moin moin😂
4) Cover moin moin filled mug with a microwave safe lid, put in the microwave and initially cook on defrost setting using weight defrost at 20g for 3-4 minutes then switch to microwave setting for another 2 minutes. It takes about 5 minutes in total but depending on microwave model and size of mug cooking timer may slightly vary.
5) Microwave moin moin is ready.
Just take a look at that…Cooked in out, moist and fluffy! I used a big mug so one mug was enough for one person
I did some by steaming on stove top. I kid you not we had finished dinner and it must have started digesting before the stove top one was done!
That’s it from me today. Don’t forget to tag me in your pictures when you try the recipe. Also please repost and share on Facebook, instagram and other social media pages.
Yesterday I posted a throwback picture of my Semolina cake on my instagram page and thought to myself, I am going to use semolina for another recipe yet again. Today I decided to add some semolina cereal to my smoothie and result was yummy and filling healthy smoothie so I’m sharing the recipe with you.
Semolina cereal (Prepared like oats or pap)
Banana, Pineapple, Oranges
Strawberries, handful of Kale, Carrot
1 tablespoon honey
1) Add the Semolina cereal in blender , followed by yoghurt
2) Add the fruits and vegetables and blend till smooth
3) Serve and enoy
4) It tasted so good and it’s filling. It’s 3pm and I don’t even feel like having lunch.
Healthy, yummy, filling and easy. What’s not to love about this? Enjoy!
Tip: I buy different fruits and vegetables, portion them, put in freezer bags and freeze so anytime I want to make smoothie I bring out a pack put in blender, add yoghurt or milk, honey and blend. It saves me stress and my smoothie comes out chilled. Below is a picture of how I pack them.
Don’t forget to leave feedback and let me know your thoughts on the recipe. In next few days I am going to try adding garri to smoothie and some other Nigerian ingredient wink.
Hello Cands, It’s been a minute. How have you all been? I’ve been good myself but my laptop went burst on me plus I have been so busy in the last few weeks. Laptop is now up and running and here I am now 🙂
So, it was Carribean food week August 24th-31st and Grace foods UK sent me a hamper of goodies to create some recipes with. Grace foods UK are the UK’s largest supplier of Carribean foods and drinks.
I have created some recipes with the ingredients and one is Scotch bonnet cake. Yes you read that right. Scotch bonnet Cake! Bake with me:
Preparation time: 25 minutes
Baking time: 20 minutes (Cupcakes)
Total time: 45 minutes
5 medium eggs
1 whole scotch bonnet
3 tablespoon Dunn’s river coconut milk
1) Rinse the scotch bonnet, deseed and blend with coconut milk
2) In a bowl, add the butter and sugar and beat with electric mixer till it’s fluffy and turns pale.
3) Break the eggs into a bowl and beat lightly.
4) Add the eggs to the butter/sugar mixture very slowly while still mixing with electric mixer. This is to prevent the mixture from curdling.
5) Pour in the coconut milk/scotch bonnet mixture
6) Add flour to the mixture by folding it in with a big spoon. Do not over mix the batter. Add in 2 more tablespoons of coconut milk
7) Grease a baking pan and layer with baking sheet and for cupcakes put cupcake cases in cupcake tin. Pour batter into lined baking pan and bake in pre heated oven for 30 minutes or till cake is done.
K‘s Cuisine tip: To check if cake is done, dip a toothpick or skewer in the middle of the cake, if it comes out clean then the cake is ready. If it comes out wet then leave to bake some more.
When the cake is done, take it out of the oven and let it cool for about 20 minutes.
See how fluffy the cake is? The coconut milk did good.
You can top with scotch bonnet fresh cream or buttercream like I did below (Recipe coming soon).
The cake was yummy, fluffy and so delicious. The scotch bonnet was a hit and I totally loved the taste. Watch out for more recipes I did with the ingredients
Today’s recipe is a quick, easy recipe that is easy to prepare. It is cheap, healthy and above all yummy. It is K’s Cuisine Prawn suya stir fry! burst full of flavours and yummy goodness. This was dinner day ago. I wanted a super quick meal and decided on this. Let me warn you, the prawn suya is so good you might eat half before it goes in the stir fry..lol. Let’s get cooking:
It tastes like puff puff, It looks like puff puff, It is K’s Cuisine Semolina puffies!
Weeks ago, I developed this recipe, made and served to the hubs and his friend. I watched them keenly as they gobbled it down. They enjoyed it oblivious to the fact it was no ordinary puff puffs. I went on to ask them if they tasted anything different with the puff puffs. My husband’s friend Elvis was quick to point out that he tasted coconut. I agreed with him and asked what else he had tasted. He and my hubby requested to sample more and yet they had no clue! I smiled to myself. Yasss…that right there has passed the taste test. No weird taste, and they asked for more.
I did not reveal the ingredient to them but I’m sure they will both read this post and realise what they had eaten that day…hehee.
What I served them was cinnamon and icing dusted semolina puffies developed by K’s Cuisine.
Why Semolina? Because it’s different and has health benefits which include improving kidney function, high in nutrients among others.
For more on health benefits of Semolina, here is a link http://os.care2.com/all/7-amazing-health-benefits-of-semolina#1
Semolina also makes one feel fuller and thus good for those who want to lose weight or on diet as small amount of these puff puffs makes you feel fuller for longer.
So ladies and gentlemen, here is my semolina Puff puff recipe:
Meal type: appetiser, dessert
Preparation time: 10 minutes
Cooking time: 140 minutes
Total time: 150 minutes
200g Semolina (fine)
1 tablespoon Dessicated coconut (Optional)
1/4 teaspoon nutmeg
1/4 teaspoon salt
70g Sugar (optional)
1 tablespoon active dry yeast
Sunflower Oil for frying
1) In a mixing bowl, mix semolina, sugar, dessicated coconut salt and nutmeg
2) In another bowl, activate the yeast by adding warm water to yeast with a teaspoon of sugar. stir well and leave for 5 minutes.
3) Pour the yeast mixture into the semolina mixture and mix thoroughly
4) Cover with cling film or towel and leave to rise for 90-120 minutes
5) Pour Oil into a deep pan. The oil should be atleast 3 inches deep. When the oil is heated, scoop batter into the oil
6) Fry till golden brown. Place on kitchen towel to drain excess oil.
7) Dust with cinnamon and icing sugar (Optional)
Best Served Warm
K’s cuisine extra notes
The Catch apart from health benefits of Semolina is it makes you fuller than ordinary puff puff and reduces quantity you eat which is good for people looking to lose weight
Semolina is yellow in colour therefore the inside is not as white as using all purpose flour
Use Semolina fine over coarse for a less gritty taste
You can also Substitute flour for semolina in snacks like buns, doughnuts, etc
You can bake instead of frying
You can use half semolina and half plain flour for this recipe
Replace sugar for honey
Enjoy making and eating semolina puffies 🙂
